Red was the Night #Poetry

the red night

She cut me
cut me like diamonds
She strung me
strung me through a gold chain
And around her neck
she wore me night and day
All night and day
Night to day

My heart shattered
and sent thunder through the night
Every tear that I cried
rained into the sky

Every drop of my blood
from every scratch, from every cut
ran into a flood
and fell up above

The skies roared with pain
as the red swallowed up the stars
Lightning shot through my veins
and drowned the man in the moon

Just like that
there was no more light
Suddenly
red was the night

In this sky of red
the sun won’t ever rise again


Thanks for reading!
